there and you see michelle obama and dr. jill biden greeting each other as well. what struck most of us in the news room about this picture was this really doesn't seem to be a scene of jubilation. it seems to be a scene of relief, heavy sigh, if you will, felt in that room at the moment that the president understood he had won four more years at the whitehouse. let's go back to mccormick place as we are with the crowd there waiting for the president to step out. bob. >> well, you know, i've covered a lot of campaigns in my time and it's always more fun to be with the winner than it is with the loser. there's nothing quite as sad or as sad a places to be, to be in the campaign headquarters of the guy that lost. it's just tough on everybody. >> i think that's why you saw the whitehouse particularly chose that picture. they did not want to look like they are spiking the ball. and even gave axelrod an interview they did not want to appear they were celebrating too early and not tush sor to be sof gracious. having fought campaigns before people know what it's like to be on the losing side.

reaction to the election day results from yesterday. one viewer suggesting yesterday that president obama ought to give mitt romney a big job in his administration all in the interest of bipartisanship. i agreed with that. i suggested perhaps tax reform and michelle in hyattsville is with us. i think you have a great idea about including romney in some sort of position in this second government given how divisive the politics of the race were. this would go a long way to creating genuine bipartisanship to solve the serious economic problems this country faces. romney's business experience would be invaluable and silence the racial and class bigots. then there was this on a story i did last night at 11:00 chatting with an elections expert who argues that those fancy new touchscreen voting machines are the real reason behind those long voting lines. he says we need to go back to the paper ballots and our good friend deb from arlington believes him. well, now live in arlington and voted with ease with a paper ballot. i had never done one before, but they told me the line was shorter than for
